You seem to be good at logic, Teoeo. Have you considered law school? We could use somebody like you!

Dear 0Ls: The legal market in its heighday of 05-07 or so was such that only a tiny fraction of graduates from American had opportunities that most pre-law students desire (federal government positions, big firm jobs, prestigious public interest work, whatever the hell 'international law' is). You may not fully understand it yet, but all of the clinics, professors, classes, study abroad opportunities, concentrations, etc. that a school offers are meaningless when it comes to employment prospects.
ALL THAT MATTERS are grades and school rank. And from a school like AU, your grades have to be damn near perfect these days to have a chance at the kind of job you probably want.
If the debt is worth the risk, God Speed and I hope you've done your homework.
If it's not, find out what kind of jobs people around median at AU wind up getting. Here's a hint: They pay substantially less than 70K, probably in the 30-50 neighborhood, are neither glamorous nor international law, and provide poor prospects of upward mobility.
